A/C cycles indefinitely even when cold

Is it expected for the a/c compressor to cycle on and off every 10 seconds or so? I noticed this during the summer but it wasn't doing it so often.

Here there are 0 degrees Celsius outside and as far as I know it should stay turned off, instead it cycles every 10 seconds (like on a pattern).

The loud click of the clutch is a bit irritating and it also makes the ride juddery.

Any tips? Thanks!

Have you got the heater set to Auto? A/C deosnt just cool it acts as a dehumidifier too so will work in the winter if you have it turned on.

This is normal for these cars. Nothing to worry about
